Bagby is the pizza place you wish was in your own neighborhood. Pie crusts are cracker thin, pastas and salads are homemade and generous, and service aims to please.
Greek food--who knew? No greasy rotating column of anonymous gyro meat in this classy cultured pearl of a restaurant. Yes the food is Greek, but it's the food of a seaside gem on some tiny Aegean isle where dinner was swimming in the ocean only hours ago. Black Olive prides itself on using only truly fresh and organic ingredients, simply prepared to allow the food's own excellence to shine. Best bet is to select from the catch of the day, on ice by the kitchen. Have it grilled and served with the Black Olive's proprietary sauce that enhances both the sweetness and salinity of the exquisitely fresh fish. A little savory bread pudding (made with olive bread) on the side is also advised.
The Brass Monkey features local, alternative live shows where tickets are pre-sold by the bands themselves. Live music every Thursday through Saturday night for bands and TUESDAY is Acoustic Open Mic Nite hosted by Jack Burns.
This Fells Point legend features live music nightly including American roots music, blues, and jazz.
Things change. The original Daily Grind-ramshackle and smoky-is now a maritime museum. Smokers have been banished from the new location as well, and the crowd coming in looks positively reputable. The Key Coffee brews are still among the best around, and nourishing sandwiches (powerhouses, hummus sandwiches) and baked goods (that blueberry muffin) remain affordable.

The first Salvadoran restaurant along the Broadway strip to openly court a gringo clientele, this white-tablecloth spot is more inviting and finished looking than its ramshackle Spanish Town precursors. The food served is very similar, though--groaning servings of plain, simple, modestly spiced food. The value-priced combination platters are artless concoctions of dense papusas, endless refried beans, yummy tamales, fried plantains, and marinated beef. Seafood selections from the mesquite grill help to raise up the fare. Restaurante El Trovador is the place to take newcomers to try this starchy, satisfying cuisine.
If you can get a seat in this busy diner in the heart of Fells Point, it's probably the best cheap eats to be found in the neighborhood. Tasty lunch-counter basics, like meat-loaf sandwiches, pancakes, and burgers round out the menu, and if you've got a hankering for a little something to wash down that pancake breakfast, they serve alcohol all day, too.
Leadbetters Tavern focuses on live music with two shows nightly featuring local and regional musicians playing blues, folk, guitar heavy folk, and other roots music. Never a cover.
Liquid Earth is the place for a shot of wheat grass or a fruit-, veggie-, and vitamin-filled beverage. It is also the home of some of the most heavenly meat-free sandwiches ever to grace our cakeholes. The sacred submarine--crunchy Italian bread stacked high with baked tofu, roasted onions, mushrooms, cheese, pickles, and cherry hots--is so large it usually ends up being lunch and dinner. The meatless muffaletta is another favorite. And Liquid Earth's vegan cheese--which can be substituted for the cow variety on any sandwich--is so creamy you won't believe its dairy free. Just don't hit up Liquid Earth if you're in a hurry; this place is too laid back for rush orders.
Full-size entrees now grace this small-plates menu, although the tapas remain the key draw: beef tartare and seafood carpaccio are very beautiful.
The world's friendliest bakery offers up not only a full range of breads and sweets, but also filling focaccias, paninis, etc. for lunch. Serves dinner on weekends during the summer.
When Pierpoint opened in 1989, chef Nancy Longo's little restaurant created quite a local stir. For the first time Maryland food--specifically, Chesapeake cuisine--was being treated not just seriously but reverentially. Seventeen years later the crowds might have thinned, but Pierpoint is still quietly concentrating on dishes that showcase the freshest and most excellent of local ingredients. If it's been a while since your last visit, you'll be relieved to know that the smoked crab cakes are still on the menu, and the Silver Queen corn chowder still reigns as the house soup.
The two best reasons to go are the free parking lot (a Fells Point rarity) and the handsome, soaring brick-and-wood space, which handily accommodates large crowds. The menu has undergone what looks like a complete overhaul since City Paper last visited. There are now, along with the sandwiches and salads, more bona fide entrées, and the fine steak salad and yummy thin-crust pizza are still in place, but what's become of those fabulous panini? On the other hand, some of the clunkers have vanished, too. Popular Sunday brunch features jumbo lump crab hash and fried steak and eggs.
A quality, contemporary, and reasonably-priced seafood restaurant that's just a seafood restaurant--not a fish market or crab house.
"Brand new bistro located on ground floor of Douglass-Myers Maritime Museum. Cuisine features freshest food connected to local farms. Spectacular chili, soups, sandwiches, desserts. Zeke’s coffee. Especially known for artisan pizzas from the chef of The Black Olive. Very affordable. Beautiful setting with waterfront view, free Wi-Fi."
